Where problems become mere challenges to be overcome... Come heal with me!
Both my professional and lived experience enables me to offer effective outpatient, individualized, mental health care with a keen eye towards the role that grief and loss plays in many of our presenting mental health concerns. I treat a number of mental health disorders, and provide a safe space to feel and process for individuals, families, and couples.
This is a place for those who feel stuck, burdened by the weight of both expectations placed on them by others as well as extremely high expectations placed on self. This is a space for those frustrated by their current situation and who are ready for a serious change. This is a space for soul seekers who have made the decision to live a fuller, more fulfilled, and more satisfying life and are ready to take those first steps. My treatment style is “Empowerment Through Self-Awareness”, and is based on the premise that everything that you need to live your best life is already inside of you and just needs to be unleashed. I take a journey with you in knowing yourself on a deeper level, further empowering you to take effective action in your life. Whether your issue is anger, anxiety, depression, trauma, marital and/ or family strife, sexual orientation or gender identity- related... it’s all grief... and unhealed grief keeps us stuck. I’m here to help you identify what you’re grieving, move forward in healing from it, and get yourself un-stuck so you can move forward.
I promise to be there for you every step of your journey. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain and grief, and move forward to where you want to be in your life.
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with both couples and is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.

Hello and welcome!
My name is Antwan McKenzie-Plez, Owner & Clinical Director of Its All Grief, LLC, Grief & Trauma Specialist, and bona fide Neuroscience Fanatic. I love the human brain and all of its amazing capabilities, including its ability to access true healing and restoration. I study it intensely and am constantly engaged in perfecting strategies to help people do just that. I consider myself, "Counselor by Profession... Healer by Calling". It's important to know that I practice therapy in a very de-colonized, non-traditional, and non-oppressive manner. By that, I mean that in our relationship, I may be the expert on mental health and healing, but YOU ARE THE EXPERT ON YOUR LIFE! So we both use our best skills to work together in healing and liberating you.
I am a mental health counselor located in Broward County, Florida.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), licensed by the State of Florida (currently working on licensure in additional states).
I hold a Bachelor of Science in ESE K-12, a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and a Graduate Certification in Alcohol & Drug Abuse Counseling.
I am trained and experienced in providing various types of therapy, including Brainspotting, EMDR, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and Trauma-Focused CBT just to name a few.
I am experienced in treating a myriad of issues, including anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma-related disorders.
I work with individuals ages 11 and up, and provide a focus on helping people survive and thrive in the systems they live in, with particular focus on the ever present role that unresolved grief plays in many of our situations in which we feel “stuck”- unable to move forward with life. My clients benefit from learning what it is that is causing them to feel stuck, and then becoming empowered to take effective action in their own lives toward getting “un-stuck”. Sometimes this includes freeing oneself from the bondage of expectations, which can sometimes keep us from living as our truest and most authentic self.
I am a strong advocate for all gender minorities, to include cisgender women, women of color, and trans-identified individuals.
I am a fierce defender of every child’s right to live and grow in a supportive and loving environment, and a champion for families.
I am an advocate for human rights for all people. My therapy office is a safe space for all people.
